This is the first child for Kareena Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan, who married in 2012. They began dating after making 2008 movie Tashan and have since co-starred in Kurbaan and Agent Vinod. Saif Ali Khan, who is divorced from actress Amrita Singh, also has a daughter named Sara and son named Ibrahim.
Kareena, who has been cast in Veere Di Wedding with actresses Sonam Kapoor and Swara Bhaskar, will return to work in a while. She was last seen in this year's Udta Punjab and had a role in Salman Khan's 2015 blockbuster Bajrangi Bhaijaan. The first trailer of Saif Ali Khan's next film Rangoon is expected later this month. The film, directed by Vishal Bhardwaj, co-stars Shahid Kapoor and Kangana Ranaut and will release next year. Saif's last film was 2015's Phantom with Katrina Kaif.
